Let’s be honest: price is important. It does influence our food choices. If healthy food is more expensive then it could be a significant barrier to us eating more healthily. Is it possible to follow a healthy diet on a budget?

But obvious the question: does it provide healthy options too? Do we give up nutrition for convenience? (more…)
There are three really good reasons for eating pumpkins:

I resisted a slow cooker for a long time: I just did not want another big appliance sitting unused on my kitchen worktop. Finally, I gave a chance to it and my slow cooker has proved that I was wrong. To be honest, I just fell in love with it. A good slow cooker helps you to provide healthy and delicious meals to your family with a minimum effort. Basically, it gives you free time, lots of free time,- and no guilty conscious: home-made family meals are sorted.

Okay, the real question is: Why would you spend your precious time with meal planning?
Let’s face it: meal planning is a weekly struggle in most mum’s life. What to cook? When? What ingredients do I need? When to buy them?
Still: I have lots of reasons in support of meal planning, let me show you what you can gain planning family meals ahead.

I can tell you that introducing solids into my children diet has been a big relief. And this also brought up new questions:
Can toddlers and small children really eat the same as we eat?
Do we offer the right kind of food for them?
How can we provide them and for us, for the adult members of the family a balanced diet at the same time?

There are so many diet programs and meal planning tools available on-line nowadays. They are a great help to start a special diet or lose weight. However, looking at these I noticed one common problem: nearly all of them focus on individuals.
This seems to be okay, most people are dieting alone.
Hold on a minute. Is it right?
What about family meals?
This recipe has been my little secret – until now. I must share it with you as this is the dessert what is really good for you: high in fibre, high in iron and it really chocolatey.

And the best part: only 10 minutes to make it! (more…)
After my detox week, when I eat mainly yoghurt, raw vegetables and fruit, I cannot wait to make something yummy. I share you the recipe for my Easter braided bread with poppy seeds and damson jam. This decorative sweet bread can be the main attraction on your Easter breakfast table or it is brilliant as a snack with a cup of tea/milk. It keeps for 2-3 days in an airtight container but is best eaten fresh.
